Summer Veggies

W16 8 27 PENTALIC VEGGIES 004Okay, despite my annoyance with
Pentalic Aqua journals
, it is what I have until
sixty pages are used up!  (I will tell you if my bugging them a second time  gets their attention!

While I am working on the pieces for
Restore Oregon, I played with this lovely bowl of fruits and veggies.  Watercolors demand so
much patience (which I have little of) because of drying time, and summer is so beautiful in its produce colors!   I am using a large brush to keep it loose, and colors ran several times… Okay!  Also, I am working fast because I am busy!

But what do you do when your husband
eats your red tomato for breakfast?

W16 8 27 PENTALIC VEGGIES 006Came in with deeper colors in the basket, and then, of course,
the final colors on the peppers and warm-colored tomatoes.

Always organic; it matters!

    That looks delicious. Somehow, I like it better than the photo.
